This finish provides durability, resistance to heat and keeps cabinets from corroding. Varnishes are traditionally made up of a combination of resin and oils. As it dries, the result is a hard surface and a fade resistant finish on cabinets. Varnishes also come in a variety of colors. Tinted varnishes have rich colors which can be used to show off the graining pattern of wood more. Aside from traditional and tinted varnishes, other types of this finish include catalyzed varnish, which is a fast acting varnish that is more durable and corrosion resistant, and polyurethane varnish, which is thicker and creates a glossy appearance for kitchen cabinets.
A beadboard is a row of narrow wood planks that are lined up vertically. Each wood plank has a little ridge in between or a joint where the planks meet which is called a bead. The type of construction that a beadboard panel has traditionally follows a tongue and groove connection in which the tongue of the plank is inserted into the groove of the next plank, perfectly joining the pieces of planks together to form a whole panel of vertical slats.
The mullion kitchen cabinet style is the perfect fit for traditional, classic and transitional kitchens. It embodies timelessness and elegance, while giving off a traditional feel to kitchens. However, it can also be used in more contemporary settings, as the design is highly customizable too. Using textured accent window paired with streamlined brushed metal hardware can easily update the look of traditional mullion kitchen cabinet doors.
A basic Shaker front can also work for a modern kitchen. Just make sure you keep it clean and simple. You do not want very many decorative touches. Keep detailing to a minimum. Avoid rounded elements and deep contouring, as they give off a more traditional feel. You want sharp and sleek cabinet doors.
